As part of the Pinehurst Inn Sustainable Operations Plan, we have made a strong commitment to creating our full breakfast with as many locally grown ingredients as possible.
Fortunately Bayfield is blessed with amazing orchards providing berries throughout the summer. Fresh organic eggs are delivered to the Pinehurst kitchen weekly from Angel Acres Farm. Big Water Coffee provides freshly roasted coffee beans on a regular basis – ah, the aroma! Sour Dough Breads used for Pinehurst French Toast recipes come from Ashland Baking Company. Dairy products come from Tetzner’s Dairy – a great multi-generation farm that allows milk, cheese and more to be purchased on the honor system (oh, and let me tell you about their ice cream!!).
Consider the Pinehurst Blueberry Oven French Toast – incorporating Bayfield blueberries, organic eggs, fresh dairy whole milk & cream cheese and locally made sour dough bread. YUM!
Why purchase local foods?
- Health benefits – fresher means high nutritional value
- Taste benefits – fresher mean better taste and truly ripe
- Economic benefits – supporting local businesses just makes sense as we keep our money recycling within our own area
- Environmental benefits – sustainable farming supports the environment by enriching the soil, protecting air and water quality, and minimizing energy consumption.
Perhaps just as important are the great farmers and producers that we’ve gotten to know – all characters in their own right – who share not only their products and produce, but their love of the area and the knowledge that we are creating something yummy for our guests using their ingredients.
